I LOVE a good pizza! But, the toppings are the thing to watch out for. So, I went to my Pinterest board to look for some healthy Breakfast Pizza recipes to share today. Some have meat and some don’t. The important thing is getting a good start to the day with something that’s actually good for us.

Here’s my round-up today!

Ingredients

  • 6 egg whites
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk or milk of choice
  • 1/2 cup baby spinach
  • 16 ounces turkey breakfast sausage
  • 5 cups shredded potatoes 1 regular sized 16 oz frozen bag 12-ounces
  • 2 tbsp light cheddar cheese omit for dairy free
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 F. Prepare a 10.5-inch x 15.5-inch sheet pan with avocado cooking spray.
  2. Add the turkey sausage to a skillet and bring to medium heat. Break the sausage up with a spatula as it cooks. Once cooked, drain and set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine eggs with milk, salt, pepper & spinach.
  4. Layer shredded potatoes in an even layer on the sheet pan. Sprinkle the sausage over the potatoes. Pour the eggs and spinach mixture over the top. You may need to spread it so it’s in an even layer.
  5. Sprinkle cheese over the top.
  6. Bake at 375 F 25-30 minutes until eggs are set.
  7. Remove from the oven and slice with a sheet pan safe knife into 16 squares to serve immediately.

Tater Tot Breakfast Pizza

Ingredients

  • 30 oz tater tot crowns
  • 1/2 tbsp vegetable oil

  2. Line the bottom of a 12-inch greased cast iron skillet with tater tot crowns and then line the sides of the pan. Bake for 15 minutes.
  3. While baking, heat the oil in a pan over medium heat. Whisk together the eggs and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Cook the eggs until just set (they will cook more in the oven).
  4. Remove the tater tots from the oven and use a spatula to press down on top and sides of the pizza to smash the tater tots a bit.
  5. Top with one cup of shredded cheddar cheese.
  6. Add the scrambled eggs, sausage crumbles and another cup of shredded cheese, making sure the cheese reaches the tater tots on the sides of the pans.
  7. Sprinkle with the crumbled bacon and bake for an additional 10 minutes.

To make the yogurt filling, vegan yogurt can be too thin. You can add vegan cream cheese to vegan yogurt to thicken it up!
